Finding the Strength to Go On in “Life is Like a Boat” by Rie Fu

Day 16:  A Song that Holds a Lot of Meaning to You

Life is Like a Boat by Rie Fu (リエ フゥ) is the first ending theme song of the anime Bleach, adapted from the manga by Kubo Tite (久保 帯人).  Like what I said in a previous post, Bleach Got it Right with Life is Like a Boat, this song is one of my absolute favourites.  I often listen to it not only because the melody is beautiful but also because of its meaningful and inspiring lyrics.

Who is Your Favourite Mangaka?

Difficult question.  I have lots of mangaka that I highly respect.  Some of them include (in alphabetical order):

Kishimoto Masashi (岸本 斉史) – Naruto
Ōba Tsugumi (大場 つぐみ) & Obata Takeshi (小畑 健) – Death Note, Bakuman.
Oda Eiichiro (尾田 栄一郎) – ONE PIECE
Togashi Yoshihiro (冨樫 義博) – HUNTERxHUNTER,Yū Yū Hakusho  <– I respect you very much, Togashi-sensei, but if you would just please focus on continuing and finishing HxH?  That would be awesome.

Plus a lot more, but if I put them all here, then this post would be very long.  So I’ll just settle for these 4 mangaka.  

Who’s YOUR favourite manga artist?

Dear DGS Douchebags: Welcome to My Blog!

Warning:  This post contains words and an image not suitable for young children.

Dear Girl ~Stories~ is the #1 most searched for topic here at Fujinsei.  My DGS translations are some of the all-time most popular posts in my blog.  Given that I started translating DGS as a means of amusing myself, I am in a state of amazed disbelief at this turn of events.

Connecting with Fellow Fans from all Over the World

All of a sudden, people from other countries I’ve never been to before, speaking in different languages, are reaching out to me and sending their thanks and appreciation for translating DGS.  I am SHOCKED!  Some of them even don’t speak a lot of English and have to use an online translator to read my posts and even to communicate with me.  How amazing is that?!  I’ve connected and even became online friends with some of these people all because we happen to love DGS.

Starting a New Hobby

Hi hi!

My first blog post huh… The start of something new! What better way to kick off a new hobby than reminiscing about how I started my current hobby, Hiroshi Kamiya. My interest in Hiroshi Kamiya started rather abruptly; even I get confused as to how exactly it happened…

Let’s dive in, shall we?

Fujinsei Welcomes pastelshion as New Blogger!

Hello, folks!  This is Arria and I have an exciting news today.  Please help me welcome Becky a.k.a. pastelshion who will join me as a new blogger here at Fujinsei.  We met through Twitter and bonded over our mutual passion for the Japanese radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~ and our admiration for seiyuu Kamiya Hiroshi (神谷浩史).   Check her out on Twitter @AnimeBecky.

Be nice to her, okay?  And don’t forget to say hello.  Show her how warm and welcoming our blogging community here.  I’m going to shut up now and let her introduce herself to all of you.  Cheers!


Hiya! I’m Becky, a Brit too obsessed with Kamiya Hiroshi for my own good. I’m new to writing a blog, but I hope you all enjoy my ramblings about various things, most likely all related to Kamiya Hiroshi, Ono Daisuke or DGS in some way. As for random facts about myself, I fell into this endless spiral of getting a little bit too emotional over seiyuu a few months back, when for some unknown reason I latched onto Kamiya Hiroshi and have been addicted ever since. . .Not that I’m complaining and besides, who can blame me? Who could resist this face?
